What Is Not Romance (US Premiere)
Tuesday, April 5, 2011 at 7 PM
(54 Varick Street)
Jae Oak Park/Kyung Soo/Eun Ji Hong, Animation, 2009, 70 minutes
A surprisingly moving animated film, WHAT IS NOT ROMANCE is all about a middle aged couple approaching their anniversary and it's as tender, delicate and subtle as the best arthouse movie. Tensions are rising, dinner table conversation is nonexistent and all their romance seems dead. Leaping backwards in time it returns to the beginning of their marriage when they were head over heels in love with each other and traces it to the present when they barely talk and tries to see if there's any way for a couple married for years to get back to the way things were.
All seating is first-come, first-serve. Doors open at 6:30 PM.
